A fool is a simple English parfait made with puréed fruit and whipped cream. Although the original recipe is made with custard, most of the recipes you'll find these days skip the custard and simply use sweetened cream.
Just like the original dessert, my keto-friendly recipe requires just a few common ingredients. Berries are now in season so I used blackberries from the garden but any berries will work just fine. Feel free swap the blackberries with my Low-Carb Strawberry & Rhubarb Jam, Sugar-Free Raspberry Balsamic Chia Jam or one of my absolute favourites Low-Carb Cherry Amarenata.
And it's not just a summer treat. You can use my Low-Carb Mulled Wine Berry Jam and you've got the perfect keto treat for the Holiday season!
This keto dessert has been adapted from Jamie Oliver's recipe.
